    I'm just curious before buying something like the 9360, in case it has coil whine, can be "fixed" by the user, or it's some serious motherboard issue?

    It's a result of the coil resonating at an audible frequency - it's a byproduct of the machine working essentially. Only way to fix it is either glue the coils or turn it off.

    For 9350, all I need to do is to let it sleep and wake up, the coil whine would be completely gone.

    I was going to say stop putting your head on the keyboard. But I have a desktop in my motorcycle shop and get his through the speakers in between songs etc. But as soon as their is content coming through them, it either stops, or I can't hear it so it does not bother me.
